John,

I know what you mean about being sooooo busy. I'm still trying to finish my 60-90 size Aeorworks Extra 300 which is taking me WAY WAY WAY too long....................[>:]

Your Nemesis is looking AWESOME. Keep up the great work and you;ll be finished in No TIME ! ! !

this choke linkage is going to be a real pain, how are people setting up these chokes? I see rods attached to them in pictures, how do you keep the rod from moving back to choke open, I see no detents on the shafts, are they holding the choke open by holding the rod in one hand and proping the engine with the other?

I need a little more wire management on the wires for the wing tip lights and the ALE servo's.
I have an electronic kill switch so I can kill the engine via the radio and or the choke servo or the throttle and 1 electronic switch for the wing tip lights
3 batteries, 1 each for Ignition,RX,lights, I need a lot of nose weight to get this plane to balance.

Hey John,

It's really starting to come together now..... I'm kind of surprised that you are still going to need nose weight to balance your Nemesis with the Syssa on the nose. How much does the Syssa weigh.

Keep up the great work ! ! !

I used the lights that came with the model, 4.8 volt by the way, I used a kill switch to turn them on and off via the gear channel and I colored the lenses red and green with a sharpie marker (inside)

Hey Hobby_man,

That's a beautiful Nemesis. You did an AWESOME job on her.......... Have you flown your maiden yet? Are you going to post a video? I'd certainly love to see it.

BTW, my buddy who has the big Sundowner with the Rimfire 1.6 flew it yesterday for the first time on 12S. Let me tell you, I almost fell of the fence I was sitting on when he made his first full speed pass. That thing was INCREDIBLE ! ! ! !

I hope you have MANY enjoyable flights with your new rocket.

Plane looks great. Have you been able to take it out flying yet? I live not to far from you and we have had some very good flying weather here except for the windy weekends..

What are you running for a prop? Any data from others on top speeds with this set up?

Will a Moki 2.10 fit in this? I notive the stats calls for a 1.00-1.79 2-stroke. I have a OS 1.60 but figured the Moki would open it up. Or possibly a 50cc?

XDennis,

Yes, a Moki 2.10 should fit in the plane. There used to be (maybe still is) a racing class that race the 120 size Hanger 9 Sundowner with the Moki 2.10 and the Seagull Nemesis is basically the same plane. I think there is a picture earlier in this thread of the Nemesis with a 55cc gas motor in it as well. Also, a guy at my flying field put a Saito 300 twin in his, but he has not flown it yet.

Good luck with whichever motor you choose....

I have had the Nemesis out 6x now. Times 1-3 I had a 18x6 prop 8400 rpm, the plane was slow. I switched to a 18x10 prop 7000rpm the plane flies GREAT!

I am not sure if the motor is over heating or not. I have a telemetry wire wrapped around the middle portion of the jug. The temp is 300F. I wish they made a unit that went under the spark plug. I am afraid to wrap the telemetry wire around the plug at the base, it may pick up interference.

Hi guys
Any thoughts on servos. I perused the manual and found no specific suggestions.
I would figure digitals, metal gears, and >180 in-oz as minimal for flight surfaces.
Maybe hitec 7954sh, or savox 1256tg; something like that.

I am thinking about one with a Mintor 38 up front.

Thanks for suggestions

Howdy fellow fliers. I have just made the purchase of one of these beaut models. I have a smaller Nemesis by The World Models which I have had for almost 4 years now. It is blindingly quick with a SuperTigre G-90 on the front turning a 14x8 apc prop. It never fails to satisfy that "Need For Speed" that we all suffer from at some time or other.

Anyway - I also have a SuperTigre G-23 which has been needing a home for quite a while. Seeing as it is rated to 3.7Hp I thought the 80" Nemesis could well be the place to put it. Bench running the engine Has shown that it will turn an apc 16x12 prop to 7800Rpm. It certainly shifts some air.
Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
Trev.

The photos earlier in this thread show that this is one great looking bird. Mine has not arrived as yet. Can`t wait.
